Even now and then I'll have the foil pitch sideway and be expelled off, usually on a wave or transition, and go flying from 1meter up, and also the board and foil sometimes flies up too. It seems, you mite get boomerang, just over thinking.
You wont get a boomerang effect, when the board/foil flies up or away.
With a kite, the risk is the kite is dragging YOU, while the board/foil/whatever will slingshot after you, especially if it is slightly stuck in the water first.
So NEVER ever use a leash when using a kite
With a wing, you never get pulled away with the wing/wind, so even if you fall or jump away, and leash gets tight, you dont get this risky boomerang effect, as you dont have anything pulling you.
I have fallen in so many ways on my wingsurfer, and this effect is not present at all, like when using a kite, where it would happen more often than not.
